Poem: Cupid’s Arrow (haiku in 8 variations)


1)Sometimes the arrow’s

pointed sweetly straight, true mate

last chance romance fate

2)Sometimes the arrow’s

poisoned, replaying karma

programmed on heartache

3)Sometimes the arrow’s

a time machine of sorrow

repeating drama

4)Sometimes the arrow’s

over-flowing with bright hope


5)Sometimes the arrow’s

misaimed to the wrong target

unrequited love

6)Sometimes the arrow’s

a sadist trickster laughing

at our lonely lives

7)Sometimes the arrow’s

a teacher if we’d listen

instead of fighting.

8)Sometimes the arrow’s

a reminder that you’re still

alive, keep trying.
